Saliva DNA Collection and Preservation Devices Dx

Norgen's Saliva DNA Collection and Preservation Devices are designed for 1) simple and non-invasive saliva collection and 2) preservation of DNA in saliva samples at ambient temperature. Each of the 50 Saliva DNA Collection and Preservation Devices consists of 3 components: (1) Saliva Collection Funnel and Collection Tube, (2) Collection Tube Cap, and (3) Norgen's Saliva DNA Preservative contained within a sealed squeezable ampoule. Saliva samples are collected by spitting inside the Collection Funnel which has been assembled with the Collection Tube. After collecting the required volume of saliva the Collection Funnel is removed and the contents of the Preservative Ampoule are then added and mixed with the collected saliva. The Saliva Collection Tube is subsequently sent to the laboratory for DNA isolation and analysis. DNA can be isolated from the preserved saliva samples using Norgen's Saliva DNA Isolation Kit (Cat# Dx45400). Each of Norgen's Collection Tubes is labeled with a unique serial number that can be used for secure and anonymous tracking of the sample. The saliva DNA in preserved samples is stable for more than 2 years at room temperature. This kit is ideal for collecting and preserving DNA samples for in vitro diagnostic use for medical purposes.

Saliva DNA Preservative

Norgen's Saliva DNA Preservative is an aqueous storage buffer designed for rapid cellular lysis and subsequent preservation of DNA from fresh specimens. The buffer prevents the growth of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria and fungi, and also inactivates viruses allowing the resulting non-infectious samples to be handled and shipped safely. In addition, the buffer eliminates the need to immediately process or freeze samples and allows the samples to be shipped to centralized testing facilities at ambient temperature. The components of the buffer allow samples to be stored for more than 2 years without any detectable DNA degradation.

Nucleic Acid Isolation from Preservative

Prior to saliva DNA isolation, vortex the Collection Tube containing preserved saliva for 10 seconds and incubate at 55°C for one hour.  Saliva DNA can now be isolated from the preserved saliva samples using Norgen’s spin-column based Saliva DNA Isolation Kit Dx or other commercially available methods that have been validated for use with Norgen’s Saliva DNA Collection and Preservation Devices.
